BarCamp is a fun, user-generated “un-conference.” The BarCamp model started in the Silicon Valley as a response to formal, exclusive, and boring tech conferences and has since spread to 350+ cities worldwide. It’s a can’t miss event for techies, entrepreneurs, and social innovators.

BarCamp consists of passionate 5-minute presentations on an impromptu topic. At past BarCamps, participants have presented on Chinese Netizen Speak, HTML5s missing tag: sarcasm, Hot Social Games in China, and the best strategies for retaining Chinese vocabulary. Upon arrival, anyone (yes, anyone!) can sign up to present on anything, just let your own energy and nerdiness shine through. All presentations are followed by time for discussion–the objective is to get everybody involved!

This year Shanghai BarCamp is being led by Tech Yizu (Chinese for “Tech Ants”), a new organization that aims to organize Shanghai’s lively startup and tech community.
